SEAS 1001: Engineering Orientation is a required course for all freshmen engineering and computer science students. The purpose of the course is to introduce the students to the culture of college life, the rigors of the engineering and computer science curricula, and the profession of engineering. It is also designed to provide a sense of community and a support system for the new students. They work together on design teams, join tutoring and study groups, and participate in social activities as a class. In the first part of the semester, students attend general engineering lectures, followed by laboratory experiences that provide academic and computer tools useful to all SEAS students. In the second part of the semester, students attend lectures and laboratory sessions for their specific major fields.
The Office of SEAS Student Services organizes mentoring activities and tutoring services for freshman and sophomore SEAS students, guides SEAS student groups, and also provides referrals to the various services and support systems available to GW students.
The Office SEAS Career Services provides a system to enhance the opportunities for undergraduate internships. The office also coordinates tours of federal laboratories, and hosts employers to provide discipline-specific critiques of students' resumes in preparation for employment applications.
